USA Badminton is committed to providing a safe sport that maintains only the highest ethical and honorable standards. The Code of Ethics and Conduct ( CEC) presented in the attachment “USAB Coaches Code of Ethics and Conduct” was adopted in its entirety from the United States Olympic Committee's (USOC) Coaching Ethics Code. This code was approved by the USOC Board of Directors.
USAB has adopted this CEC to enforce and keep current the standards that have been spelled out for the benefit of athletes, their families, coaches themselves, and the greater good of the sport.
Current and potential coaches are welcome to review the USAB Coaches Code of Ethics and Conduct.

Once enforced, current certified coaches and potential (new) coaches will have to attend a one-hour face-to-face module on the new USAB Coaches Code of Ethics and Conduct before signing the “agreement.” The agreement is to ensure that coaches have read and understand the contents stated in the USAB Coaches Code of Ethics and Conduct and that they agree to abide by the Codes, and understand that violation may result in full or partial forfeitures of coaching privileges at sites or events under USAB and USOC governance.
